The EMP takes into account facility conditions. Cold or wet areas are sampled for Listeria spp. In addition program leadership actively seeks the newest information about Lm risk conditions and detection so the EMP is consistent with industry practices.
Risk assessment is a key driver for improvements to infrastructure and equipment based on prioritization of equipment and infrastructure condition and contamination related to environmental findings. There is strategic designation of resources to align with
The outcome of the risk assessment is a program that identifies quantities, locations, schedule and responsibilities. EMP is dynamic incorporating static, rotating and random sites that account for risk factors such as raw/post lethality/high hygiene
